    You can just rename it with the correct file extension (avi). If it's sticky then that it not because it's still a dat, it may just be poor quality copy.

    Whats the extension of the file mate?

    If you go to tools at the top of a window ,folder optons ,view ,then remove the tick from "hide know file extensions".

    the file may also have bad frames too.You could try an avi fixer or virtual dub.
